Spring fever

Spring is seeming a little distant today. We got snow this morning. I needed to do something before I finally lost it, so I got out the gift certificate that the Niece has given me for my birthday and went shopping for plants.

White Flower Farms is like crack for gardeners. I refuse to admit how much I spent, but this spring I am putting in some new varieties of echinacea and a second New Dawn Rose. Yes, Mikey, this time I'm planting it on the short side of the fence, so it will be climbing in your direction.

I could use some time out in the garden. There is something about working out in the garden that is incredibly soothing. So I am already planning on where to plant these babies.
